Again I’m kicking myself for having taken so much time away and missing so many of these e-mails especially since I have such a thing for out-of-the-norm non-cookie cutter starting points.
This trick little scoot was sent in by Tracy Flanders on Valentines day 2016.
Hello, my name is Tracy Flanders. I came across your site of great looking motorbikes. I thought I would send you a couple of pictures of one of mine. It started out as a Gn400 with 1930 orig. miles. It sat in a garage for 33 years in Connecticut. I sold off the orig. parts I did not need and spent the winter sittin on a milk crate putting this bike together. The motor only puts out around 27 HP. But I was able to get the weight down to about 275lbs so its peppy. Its starting to show age and damage related patina. It always makes me smile when the Harley guys ask “What Year Flanders” it is ? I hope you enjoy my Photos.
Ride safe and Thank you.Tracy
Thank YOU Tracy for the bike and your patience!
I love the direction he took with this. Must be a stone blast to ride!
Hi Steve !
Thank you for your great blog.
Here some pics(feel free to use them) of my home made racer, based on a 2002 Suzuki SV650.
Stock engine with KN filter and fine carb’ tune, modified titanium Akrapovic exhaust line with Shark silencer (titanium wrap) Norton racer seat, great paintjob, all mixed with ideas, friends and fun.
It’s a “budget build” … and also a “pleasure machine” built to ride the Région Rhône-Alpes, near Lyon, France.
More pics and infos (in french) on my blog :
Thanks and regards,
Very well produced! If you own one you’ll get the joke. If you don’t own one hopefully you’ll appreciate the riding and hopefully the humor too. 🙂
I’m not usually a big cruiser fan but this one really strikes some nice notes.
Andrius wrote a quick note :
I really like your blog! thank you for doing that!
if I may, I attached few images of my bike. I built it myself and many parts I made too. Hope you like it!
Thanks! If you can fill us in on more specifics I’d love to hear more about it!
Steven Varrato sent in a coulple of sweet but very different bikes:
I stumbled across your site recently, and thought I had a couple pics you might like. Sorry I don’t have a ton of info; took these at Biketoberfest in Daytona around 2008. Hope you like them!
I like em both Steven. Which makes me sort of odd I suppose…. LOL.

Here‘s a couple of shots of my Suzuki 1100 i built last year.All 05 GSXR 750 suspension and a built 1260 motor.hope you like it.
God Yes! she’s a stunner!
One of the reasons I love my DR650. Lay it down, dust it off and just keep going. If you turn up the volume you can hear him say that he was F##king Lucky”… which is very true.
This is a first test post. More to come.
